Re: Kerala Floods - Aftermath and Save Sabarimala

I do hope they do not use force. But I predict CPM goons in the police uniform will be used as per the normal communist method and it would be difficult for the GoKL to control them.

There is no prompt action. Very big time NPA issues are known for years inside the banking industry. Most of the PSU banks were cooking their books to show low NPA figures. Most of the RBI actions like CDR were going nowhere. RBI knows it for a long time.It took no action for years and years.
